You know, I'm a huge fan of strategy. Scratch that - I absolutely love strategy. Frankly, I can't get enough of it. If I'm not reading a new business book, I'm probably checking out a new magazine looking for strategy cues . . . then linking them back mentally to Talent Acquisition.
In a space dominated by discussions that always focus on the tactical ("What new technology apps can further automate our recruiting process?", "What tools can help me get more names?", "What incremental… Continue

As posted on the MN Headhunter blog:
Minnesota 2009 college graduates will find another good year of job possibilities according to a recent St. Cloud State University’s Career Services Center survey.

Good posting at Lifehack on keeping emails short
. I know quite a few people who are a little longwinded when it comes to emails. Perhaps its worth sending this link to anyone you know who has this "problem".

Think it can’t happen to you? Ha! I live in Ohio and on Sunday, September 14 at about 1 p.m. an ill wind started to blow in from the southwest. I was pulling weeds in my garden when the angry, dark and low-lying ominous clouds began to pass quickly overhead. Straightening, I watched as the 100-plus year old maple trees in my front yard began to sway crazily, dropping debris from… Continue

It only happens once every four years, however takes a lifetime of dedication, sacrifice, and training to compete on the world stage.Everyone who watched the Olympics experienced the exhilaration of victory and the heart break of defeat. Sometimes the difference is so small (i.e. Michael Phelps winning 100 meter fly by 0.01 seconds) that you can hardly tell the difference between a Gold & Silver performance...although I am positive Dara Torres (losing 50 meter free by 0.01 seconds)… Continue

You may think it difficult to grab the attention of employers at busy job
fairs or on big employment web sites like Monster.
But it can be done.
By using information and your network creatively, you can cut through the
clutter and make a connection with hiring managers.
That's what two smart job seekers did, whose stories are below. What can
you learn from each?
1) Get Hired Online by Creating Buzz

Which is better for your job search, Facebook or LinkedIN?
The case for LinkedIN:
- LinkedIN allows you to build a massive network, and allows you to limited contact with any other user directly through its InMail feature
- You see 3 degrees of separation
- LinkedIN has a widget that allows you to superimpose your network over Monster and CareerBuilder ads – so you can reach line managers and bypass HR.
- LinkedIN has a similar widget to… Continue

The cap and gown is slowly making it's way to the back of the closet, the out of town guests have returned home and the haze of the last semester plus the euphoria of the graduation ceremony could now be slowly wearing off. Having spent the last eight years in college career center operations, I know that many college grads, despite what you hear, have not confirmed next steps. What is a new grad to do? As you consider your options, and there are many, here are some possibilities that have… Continue

Yesterday I got an email from a recruiter friend announcing his availability for a new position and directing interested parties to a website where the company’s resume book would be available. Blah-blah-blah. There was the euphemistic “company restructuring”, “impacted employees”, blah-blah-blah. My heart bleeds for him. Really.
I know how it is.
Out of loyalty to the company who just axed you -- mind you! -- you put the best spin on the situation, not just as a face… Continue

I'd love to get everyone's take on which side they think is better. In my job search I've been considering both but really kind of wary of going back to an agency. Maybe I'm the only one with a bad experience ?....
Agency has it's obvious advantages on the comp side but what I like about the corporate world is that you have direct contact with the Hiring Manager and have access to get your questions answered on the role. I've also found that I get more 'respect' as a corp recruiter vs.… Continue

The gap between workers and jobs continues to expand. In December of 2006, there were 1.6 job seekers for every open job. Now, by comparison, in July of this year there were 2.6 job seekers for every open job.
So what does this mean….well this past July, there were 8.8 million more unemployed job seekers in the US. Unfortunately, there were only 3.4 million job openings, according to BLS.
We are currently looking at 5.4 million more job seekers than job openings in this… Continue
